Google Earth Tours Sound Work Around

In our Google Earth Tours (GET) project we've come across a problem with sound files playing in GETs:

  • If you record the tour in sections and then try and marry them together using the KML, the sound in zipped in the KMZ fails to play
  • We've had difficulty playing audio tours generally.
A work around Paolo has come up with today is that if you put the .aac file (or .mp3) on the web and reference it with a full URL in the KML file, it will work. It makes for some fiddling around but at least we're not stuck not being able to play tours.
